The Scientific Profile of the Department Medical Management

The scientific profile of the Department of Medical Management is characterized by an interdisciplinary and inter-professional approach to teaching, research and science, using the structure of the MSH’s interdisciplinary research clusters. With these research clusters, the MSH has the possibility to bundle already existing research activities. These consist of scientific areas/themes/matters of current and mid-term relevance, access to various disciplines, using existing potential, and focusing on scientific issues, which are examined under different, disciplinary methods. Thereby, thematic units are formed, which provide access to significant health science and medical research issues.

Young disciplines in particular, such as medical management, benefit greatly from the MSH's inter-professional university concept. The discipline of medical management is based along two fundamental guidelines: One focuses on economic theories, such as principal-agent and game theory, which is the classic form of information economics. Behavioral studies of phenomena, e.g. of medical controlling, form the second focus, enabling an assignment to methodological individualism.

Various scientific projects are also conducted within the framework of the Bachelor's and Master's theses. Get in touch - we are here to advise you.

Medical Controlling and Management (B.Sc.) and Hospital Management (M.Sc.)

Rescue Management (B.Sc.)

One research focus is to improve cooperation between the various protagonists involved in emergency care and, in particular, to optimize interfaces, for example between police and non-police emergency response, and between preclinical and clinical emergency care. Also to be studied is the extent to which the traditional model of a rescue chain can be replaced by an integrative, multi-professional rescue network. Where rescue services cooperate not only with clinics but as part of a more comprehensive health care system, as well as with nursing services, home emergency call systems, crisis intervention teams, counselling centers, outpatient help facilities and many others.

With the bachelor's program Rescue Management, we currently have an extensive research project in place - recently commissioned by the Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief: We are investigating how psychosocial emergency care for children and adolescents in complex situations of danger and damage can be further developed empirically.
